I immediately looked these charmers up but I can only find March-May bloom times including the other photos in the database here. Did they have some weather confusion and have they bloomed in previous Dec.? I'll be putting these on my list to purchase either way. I tip my hat to you.

The date is incorrect. The upload put in the wrong date for some reason and I can not edit it! I also added a caption explaining the date but I guess the captions are not uploaded with the "season interest" submissions.

The correct date of my photo is February 19, 2014.

These little irises are growing on my table garden. See my thread "My big giant container, AKA Table Garden here: https://garden.org/thread/go/2...

You will find more photos of these irises in this thread. They may be blooming a little earlier because they are growing in very little soil. Just a theory though...
